    Hi all! I found this forum while researching about obtaining a title for a bike I am thinking about buying. The seller says it's a barn find with no title. Found some really good information here, thanks! Right now I own a '78 CB750A and a '72 XL250. Looking for something around 350-650 cc's with a clutch, lol.

    Welcome to the lunacy.

    I had a CB750A when I took my first MSF course (1981 :scared), and when we started doing the friction point excercises the rider/coaches were really confused.

    Other than the total lack of guts, the only complaint I ever had about the bike was how cold blooded it was. If it wasn't up to full operating temperature that bike would not engage at all.

    Hey thanks for the welcomes :)

    There are some really good rides around here; my favorites are out through Cinebar to Morton or out to Mt. St. Helens. I've only had my motorcycle endorsement since last June so I'm looking forward to finding some new favorites too.

    Aw yeah that 750 is a cold blooded beast. Once I get her out at 30-50 mph for a few minutes she runs like a dream but it's getting out onto the back roads that's a pain.
